Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:51) Holdfast Insurance BM76 (1400m)
#4 – Aqueduct @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aqueduct is a former Kiwi that has hit the ground running since arriving in Australia. He has won both starts and the latest came by more than three lengths.
The well-bred son of Dundeel is now a three-time winner from nine starts and with the 2kg claim, there is plenty to like about his chances on Saturday.
Race 2. (13:26) AAMI Maiden Plate (1000m)
#5 – Amuri @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Amuri is on debut for Team McEvoy after running 11th in a tough field at Flemington last month.
The three-year-old filly by Zoustar should have improved with the run and it’s good to see money coming for her throughout the week.
Getting the inside draw is ideal so put her on top.
Race 3. (14:01) Tab Create Your Calendar BM72 (1950m)
#4 – Allusion @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Allusion was a winner fresh up at Morphettville and although beaten last start, he has upside in this contest.
The five-year-old gelding owns two wins from three starts at this track, and that record can’t be overlooked.
He will need luck from the draw but punters should get a good sight.
Race 4. (14:36) Furphy BM58 (1000m)
#4 – Alleboom @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Alleboom has yet to finish worse than third from three career starts, which is a solid record to date.
The Jolly-trained three-year-old won on debut before finishing second at Morphettville and third at Balaklava.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and punters are getting odds worth snapping up.
Race 5. (15:16) Chalk Hill BM72 (1000m)
#2 – Taken Off @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Taken Off is a winner of three from five starts and he could add another win to his record on Saturday.
Trained by Phillip Stokes, the son of Toorak Toff scored by a nose last time out to keep his unbeaten run at Morphettville intact.
His odds are drifting but punters are now getting a better price.
Race 6. (15:56) Mitch Is Getting Hitched BM58 (1300m)
#12 – Vancity Gem @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly couldn’t have been more impressive when scoring by two lengths on debut.
She set them a merry chase and they couldn’t catch her, so expect jockey Barend Vorster to push forward on the filly once again.
She has the speed to cross from barrier 13, so it shouldn’t be an issue.
Race 7. (16:36) Terry Howe Printing BM82 (1250m)
#5 – Seemingly Discreet @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Seemingly Discreet is a professional winner of five from 10 starts and she cruised home for a three-length win last start.
The four-year-old mare put pay to a small field at Morphettville and she remained unbeaten at this track from three starts.
$3 is a fair price from bookmakers and those odds should firm throughout the week.
Race 8. (17:16) Spring Racing BM68 (1550m)
#2 – Sasun @ $12 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sasun is fresh up after a terrific campaign last season where he won three of his last five starts.
The experienced eight-year-old is an eight-time winner and he won a trial over 1200m to prepare for this race.
His fresh record is solid and punters are getting each-way value on Saturday.
Race 9. (17:56) Happy 50th Patto BM68 (1250m)
#10 – Trip @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Trip got out to a big lead at Balaklava last start before scoring easily by five lengths. The four-year-old mare loves to push forward and try run the field into the ground.
Punters should expect similar tactics here and although she gets a jockey change, Todd Pannell should try a similar strategy.
She is staying firm in the betting and that is expected.
